Happy New Year, dearest fellow travelers! I hope you had a nice holiday period of stuffing your faces and taking many naps. I had a lovely, quiet time with family and friends during the last week of 2015. Now that we’re fully into the new year, let’s jot down some New Year’s Celebrations. I enjoyed a lot of my celebrations from last year (I’ve really come ’round on real ale, for example). But although I had a lot of fun last year and saw a lot of new things, I still didn’t get out as much as I’d thought I would/hoped to. So for 2016 I’m hoping to:
- Go somewhere new to me in London a couple of times a month (museum, landmark, park, etc.)
- Get out of London and see another part of the UK once a month
- Every 2-3 months, take advantage of my proximity to Europe and visit somewhere on the Continent
- Also, as I look forward to every year, spend at least one entire day reading
Last year, I made good use of my English Heritage membership, and since I’ve had it renewed for Christmas, I can do more of that in 2016. Bring on the stately homes and drafty cathedrals! (I promise I’m 32, not 82.)
I saw a lot more than I managed to write about last year, but as ever, I’m playing catch-up. I have more to tell you about South America, for example, and I left there in 2014, but no matter. If I were in the mood to make real resolutions, this year mine would be to give you a written post a week, in addition to your Where in the World Wednesdays. I’ll do my best.
How about you, any New Year’s Celebrations you’re looking forward to?
Fabulous dress! Shorter hair really suits you, splendidly wavy. Good luck with your 2016 goals!
Oh that’s more the intense humidity of Singapore than the shortness of the hair, but thanks 🙂
